    Morning All :D
    A lovely day out there.:) Paper's got, coffee's here and so am I.
    I rather overdid the snoozing in the sun yesterday, and the angry pink colour of my torso and face attests to this fact.
    Second day of external cat tray(s), and still no disasters. Itchy-cat is still thin as a rake but eating like a horse and not puking; I hope she is on the mend.
    You all have splendid days too! :D

    Looks great! and a good result. I have a side-gate to make. The last one I made for the house lasted for 20 years but eventually rotted away.
    Next one will be bit heavier in gauge of wood used so should see me out. :)

    Today's DIY task was to make a replacement gate for the side of the house.
    The last one was of a much lighter construction than this one, and lasted over 20 years.
    This one is about twice the weight and thickness material-wise so should see me out.
    I have yet to trim it to size along the long edges. I think herself will be pleased with it.
    It is nothing fancy, just 4x1" Redwood Matching and 6 x 1" Spruce bracing.
    It is both screwed and glued where the bracing is affixed to the matching boards.
    Mrs Fox that has been using the side path is in for a shock!

    We're both using the same glue :)
    I wouldn't advise using slow dry paint like I did. :(

    That Tite-bond is good stuff! :D
    Not sure what I will use TBH, probably an exterior stain/varnish like a Sadolin Black. :)
